Welcome to St. Patrick's De La Salle B.N.S. Castlebar known locally as St. Pat's. Our school is a large, boys' school in Mayo on the west coast of Ireland. We participate in many different sports including gaelic football, hurling, basketball, cross-country running, soccer, table tennis and rugby. We are especially noted for technology education, table tennis and chess and we have a very impressive school band and choir. If you would like a more general information - to get a flavour of our school activities -   follow us on twitter @StPatricksBNS or click here

Our website has become an important link with our parents and the wider world over the last number of years in particular. We hope our website will inform and explain the work and events taking place in our school as well as providing easy access to the information you seek about our school. Fáilte isteach chuig Scoil Naomh Pádraig. 


St Pats have seven green flags!
